101 Things About Dogs E-book Is Here!!!

101-ebook-cover6The long-awaited (by me, anyways) publication of my book as an e-book download is finally a reality!  That’s right, you can now download your very own copy of “101 Things You Should Know Before Getting a Dog:  A Little Instruction Book for Prospective Dog Guardians” right here, right now!

It took us awhile to get the site set up to accept payments securely and to get the book to download properly, but it is now ready for your purchase.

As some of you know, the book was published first in softcover (available here), but it is pretty expensive to do the color printing.  So, we wanted to find a way to get this valuable resource in your hands at a more reasonable price – just $9.95.

Click here to be taken to the sales page for the e-book.  Be sure to let us know what you think!


Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

Please preview my book of dog advice

cover-pic-for-blogMy first non-fiction book is just about ready to be published, and I’d love to have your feedback before it goes to press. Based on the research I do every day for this blog and for the articles in the doggies den, I have written a little instruction book for prospective dog guardians called “101 Things You Should Know Before Getting a Dog”.

You can download and preview the first chapter of the book here.  I’d really like some honest opinions – do you love it?  Hate it?  Think it might sell?  After reading the 1st chapter, there is space on that same web page for you to rate the book and tell me what you thought.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

Lava, Dog Rescued From Baghdad

I just finished listening to the audiobook “From Baghdad, With Love”, the story of Lava, a dog rescued by Lt. Col. Jay Kopelman of the U.S. Marines.  In spite of rules which forbid bringing home dogs from a war zone, Col. Kopelman found a way to get this puppy home with the help of reporters, the Helen Woodward Animal Center, some Iraqi nationals, and the Iams pet food company. 

This is truly a good story – not only because it has a good outcome for the dog, but also because it shows how awful the war in Iraq truly is.  Kopelman pulls no punches when telling how the money is mis-spent, how the war strategy is flawed, and how the Iraqi citizens suffer under the invasion.

Here is a link to the book on Amazon, if you’re interested.  I highly recommend it!  (BTW, in looking at Amazon, I see there is a 2nd book by Kopelman, called “From Baghdad to America:  Life Lessons from a Dog Named Lava”.  I’ll have to put that one on my list, too!)

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
